Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Always look at your ticket stub

For a long time it always seemed the Dead would start the show at, say, 7pm. Night time shows. We were going to a long string of shows and that was always the case. But then we show up at the venue and we are like, wow, no traffic, cool. We get a parking space, get out, and hear Jerry wailing into a big solo. Crap. Show started at 4pm. Major blunder. You only make that mistake once!

Anyone else?

What time does it say on your ticket mcgannahan? Or are you just contemplating suicide?

never happened to me at a dead show, but i once showed up for a Who show in Atlanta on the wrong day.

Lucky for me I showed up on day 1 and my tickets were for day 2.

Unlucky for me I got a citation for "scalping" when I traded the extra ticket I had for a beer, who knew?

Even luckier for me the girl at the front gate that witnessed the whole ordeal let me in to see the show on day 1.

2 shows and a beer for the price of 1.

Judge dismissed the citation for lack of monetary consideration , sweet.

There is a moral somewhere in that, but I will leave that to the crack philosophers of the LMA...

peace
